Please join Gen Art and Epicenter:Arts for the fourth in a series of thought provoking panel discussions focusing on the arts. In preparation for Fresh Faces in Fashion this September, we are pleased to present: "Popular Culture and Fashion-Does the street influence fashion or vice versa?"
This panel will discuss the influence and inter-dependency of "street" fashion on high fashion. Who is borrowing from whom? Is this exchange defined by the times or era? A panel of industry luminaries will discuss.
